The last Morning Dew post got me thinking. To me, the keyboard is a integral part of what makes a truly memorable A.M. dew. That being said, what are some of the best dews in relation to the four "main" keyboardist. List some of your favorite Dews with Pig, Keith, Brent, and yes, even Vince. Oh yea, if L.I.A. has already posted a desertation on this previously, just post that link instead.Peace. Links to your Dews are greatly appreciated.

Phil,

Great question about Vince. Want to like the guy but I always ask can you point me to a Morning dew where he makes a contribution? Most can't. If anyone has a good version I'd like to check it out.

Keith: Barton hall 77
Brent MSG 9/87
Hornsby: Shoreline 8/91

Just my 2 cents

For me it has always been 6/18/74. Can't link you obviously cause its a RT release. It is becasue of Kieth, and his interaction with Jerry. The softest, most patient, and delicate sounds to ever come out of his piano imo.

I think Dew was always best with Kieth. My second fav would probably be 12/31/72.

I love the final Dew. I may have a slightly jaded view due to the "I was there" factor but Jerry pours a lot into it. The final So Many Roads gets a lot of press but I don't hear much mention of this. I prefer this Keo upgrade.

Honestly the keys on Morning Dew are not something I have considered before. For me this song transcends involvement from any one besides Jerry. My only live experiences were from Brent on.
This is a tune I have always revered. 10/12/84 stands out in memory, but since you asked for a link, here is my first Dew back from personal hiatus [track 20: crowd/tuning (Charlie!)] :

Thanks for the link. I was at this show as well and it was a nice memory to go back and listen to again.Dig the hammond on this one. Maybe I should have asked for best 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's versions of Dew instead. Think the keyboards help in surrounding Jerry's tone and helping him push it up to that crescendo note you hope he nails. Thanks again for your input

Considering how many times it was performed I'm hard pressed to find very many extraordinary versions due to the fact that they hacked it up most every time they played it,and usually not just a clam here and there but egregious errors both musical and vocal.Here are a few that I find interesting.

2/28/73
2/24/74
6/18/74
9/10/74
12/31/76
11/8/79
These are all fine versions,but no links are available due to being commercial releases.
